Ranking results

When finished, each engine will show either a green tick or a red cross to indicate if the check has been successful. Some common reasons for searches failing are:

  • Incorrect proxy settings
  • Setting your timeout value too low
  • Internet access being blocked eg. software based firewalls or virus protection software
  • Search engines responding slowly

The ranking window is divided into three sections. The keywords on the left, the engines and statistics on the right, and the actual search engine results in the lower part of the window underneath the engine listings.
